      A 56-year-old woman has been rescued after being trapped overnight in her car when it plunged over a cliff in north-west Cornwall in misty weather.

      The car rolled several times down the 300ft (91m) cliff at St Agnes Head before coming to rest on a ledge metres from a large drop.

      Falmouth Coastguard said the woman had been there since Monday afternoon.

      She was airlifted to the Royal Cornwall Hospital after being winched up the cliff.

      Ben Stafford, from Truro, said he had been out jogging with his wife and friends at about 09:00 BST when they spotted the car.

      I saw this on the news and was quite shocked. She is a very lucky woman to have survived such a big fall and in a car, also to have not gone any further down.

      I heard she had quite a few injuries and there was alot of blood.
